40 Days running

Hi friends,

I turned 40 on July 5th and I’m inviting you to participate in something incredibly important to me.

For as long as I can remember, animals have played an important role in my upbringing and my growth but my love for them pales in comparison to the unconditional love they give humans.

That is why for my 40th birthday, I asked my amazing friends and family to make a $40 donation towards a cause I care deeply about.

A Home for Hooves is an incredible nonprofit that rescues and gives sanctuary to abandoned animals. Currently they have 50 residents including pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, dogs, guinea pigs and cats. They always ensure the animals are provided with the best care and a good quality home where they are able to live out their natural lives.

Not sure if you know, but for the last year, I have also been volunteering with A Home for Hooves and I can’t quite describe the amount of joy it brings me to be among Theo (super stud), Lillian (such a doll), Puddin (saucy flirt),  Finnegan (the wise sage), Elvis (the King), Rocky (the resilient) and many others...

I’m so grateful for the joy these beautiful creatures bring me, and for this nonprofit that protects them everyday, that I want to use my birthday as an opportunity to highlight their important work.

I had an ambitious goal to raise $1,600 for A Home for Hooves by midnight on my birthday. Reaching that target provides all of their food for 2 months! 

I'm pretty floored that the goal was exceeded, making this such a special birthday to know that the people I love helped care for these animals with me for the whole summer.

Although we made the goal together, you can still participate in my party with additional funds going towards bedding and maintenance. Will you please join my physical distance party and make a $40 gift for my 40th? Any dollar amount helps! Danke and stay safe! Oh, and can’t wait to see everyone at the Rathskeller for my 41st ...

With gratitude and mangoes,
Stephanie Anne Gordon
